LONDON (Reuters) - Former England coach Roy Hodgson was appointed Crystal Palace manager on Tuesday, the Premier League club’s chairman Steve Parish said.

Parish posted a message on Twitter saying: “Warm welcome ‘back’ to #cpfc to Roy Hodgson.”

Palace are bottom of the league without a point after four straight defeats.
